This story is kindly sponsored by Marché Éthique. Kajol Sethia is far from your typical 22-year-old. A recent graduate of the Singapore University of Technology and Design, Kajol is a qualified aerospace engineer with a stint at Rolls Royce Engines and Rolls Royce Aerospace. She has also fundraised for Nepal earthquake relief and organised several treks in the Himalayas. Phew! She also doesn’t shy away from hard work – she worked as a librarian and waitress to support herself during her studies.
This is a story about finding yourself, and losing yourself again. Kind of on purpose. I used to LOVE long hair as a little girl. I wish I could say that I was a cool tomboy that climbed trees and ran around with the boys (because that’s apparently the “cool” way to grow up) but the truth is that I was the biggest girlie girl in the world. Even my brief “I want to be a boy” phase was cut short by the realisation that being a boy was likely to involve short hair.
#VildaOOTD is back with a new batch of well-dressed vegan fashionistas – and we take our hat off to those who braved the cold in effortless style as the weather got harsher and harsher. Of course, Vilda is an international publication, so some of the ladies on our list are lucky enough to live in locations where winter barely even makes a visit, and in this case we can’t help but (somewhat jealously) ogle their breezy, carefree ensembles while waiting for the snow to melt.
Me when I've asked the @costacoffee barista to please turn down the air con, and they say they can't because of "people in the back". Who are sitting with their jackets. It's March in the UK, ffs https://t.co/YZ7MVHMw7F
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
